"On-screen chemistry has really worked for me and Shahid, as it is a fresh pairing. Shahid is playing such a wonderful role. He has got chocolate boy kind of image, but I think it has really worked for our film. He is playing different shades of everything," Ileana said here.
"There is immense amount of action in the film, but there is also comedy, drama and so much of romance as well. I think it has worked so well for us and people will see me second time after 'Barfi!', so I believe it will work," she added.
"Phata Poster Nikla Hero", directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, features Shahid as Vishwas Rao, an aspiring actor, while Ileana plays a self-appointed social worker, Kajol.
It will hit the theatres on September 20.
